I suppose Dr. Keith is competent enough. He correctly identified a paralyzed diaphragm via an x-ray. No doctor I have seen since believes you can accurately diagnose a paralyzed diaphragm without a sniff test. My biggest complaint is to have my doctor tell me to my face "You're not going to die from it!" Thought the problem wasn't a problem but he will not give my gastroenterologist a clearance for a procedure. What? I thought it was nothing?!?!?!

Dr. Keith is kind and compassionate. His office staff is lovely; you truly feel as though they all care about your health. He is very knowledgeable and has a wonderful beside manner. So glad I found him!

Dr. Keith, is the most knowledgable internal medicine physician, he knows his patient. He takes the time to answer questions. He does not hesitate to call in a renewal of medication. He only refers you to a specialist when he feels it is in the best interest of the patient. He is a wonderful person and physician. He has been my personal physician for 17 years.
